GIS/Valuation Technologies Conference

The likelihood that travel and social distancing restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic will continue through the first quarter of 2021 is high. Further, the health and safety of our communities remains of utmost importance. In light of these circumstances, URISA and IAAO have made the decision to move forward with a virtual GIS/Valuation Conference in 2021. The 24th annual conference will take place in late March (specific dates forthcoming).

Please check the Conference web page - www.urisa.org/valtech - for updates.
